, or instead, a different kind of mission? and pakistan in particular, the safe havens that are in pakistan, what kind of policy will you have? thank you. >> the mission will be fundamentally different. just to repeat, our main reason , should we have troops in afghanistan post-2014, at the invitation of the afghan government, will be to make sure that we are training, assisting, and advising afghan security forces who have taken the lead and are responsible for security throughout afghanistan and and interest the united states has, the reason we went into first place, is to make sure that al qaeda and its affiliates cannot launch an attack against the united states or other countries from afghanistan. we believe we can achieve that mission in a way that is very different from the very active presence that we have had in afghanistan over the last 11 years. president karzai has emphasized the strains that u.s. troop presence is in afghan villages, for example, has created. that will not be a strain if there is a follow-up operation because that will not be our responsibility. that will be th

india and pakistan have a fear that what will have been, still inside pakistan, where they will go because pakistan is also among other nations. but reality can you give to those working in afghanistan? >> i think what we have to look at then is we have to rest comfortable with that list then, chicago, tokyo come in the international community has a huge commitment and frankly when we look at $16 billion of international commitment, it can, i don't think afghanistan is going to be standing alone. we'd like them to stand up, but again we need to be there. the >> can you review the bidding on what his profile at the insurgency today, roughly how many taliban either? how many al qaeda -- what are your best estimates and the breakdown between the hard-core click >> that it's a very difficult question. part of it deals with the nature of how things in the inning out of afghanistan for certain. i've seen numbers quite honestly as low as 20,000 insurgents and with the afghan partners around 30. the exact percentage of what's hard-core and what's not is very hard to break apart. i think th
'm against dumb drone strikes. we seem to have stepped up our drone strikes in pakistan, and also in yemen. we have done six strikes in the span of eight days. this is significantly increased from the past, and it was pretty heavy in the past as well. in fact, according to the bureau of investigative journalism. since 2002 our drone strikes have killed between 558 to 1119 civilians, that's not militants and 204 to 350 have been children. the person who is known as mr. drone is john brennan so what does he get? of course, a promotion. he's now being considered for the head of the c.i.a. in fact, he has been nominated by president obama. now when he was asked about drone strikes earlier, here's part of what he had to say. >> we may also use force isn't with our inherent rights of national self defense. there is nothing in international law that bans the use of remotely piloted aircraft for this purpose or prohibits us from using lethal force against our enemies outside an active battlefield. at least when the country involved consents or is unable for unwilling to take action against the thr
reportedly has decided to exclude cia drone strikes in pakistan from new legal oversight for targeted killings overseas. the washington post reports counter-terrorism adviser and cia-nominee john brennan has signed off on a plan to exempt the drone attacks in pakistan from a list of operations that would be covered under newly enacted rules. areas covered in the so-called play book include the process for adding names to kill lists, the principles for killing u.s. citizens abroad, and the command chain for authorizing cia or u.s. military strikes outside war zones. the exemption of drone strikes in pakistan would allow the cia to continue carrying them without -- tearing them without a legal framework for a to two years. the hostage standoff in a jury of his ended in the deaths of dozens of people, including up to 48 of the captured workers. algerian forces say they recovered at least 25 bodies after storming the militant held gas complex saturday, bringing the confirmed death toll to least 80. witnesses say the hostages were brutally executed. the toll could have been worse as hundre
. there is even talk he might be held in south pakistan or paris. do you know why she thought that? >> the e-mail came from pakistan. that is why we started looking at the possibility but i don't believe he is there. i believe he is still in iran. >> they spoke with secretary clinton about her husband and they said they will do everything they can to help him be home. he has been missing since 2007. >> before you leigh the hou-- ae the house let's get an update on the weather. >> there could be tornadoes in southeastern texas. it is part of the storm system that is producing a flooding concern across eastern texas, louisiana and arkansas because it has a lot of moisture with it and it will be dumping a lot of heavy rain and has been doing so since yesterday across the areas. the good side of the storm is we have an invow across texas and oklahoma and we are seeing much needed rain in some of these areas. stay alert with flooding in your area. we are seeing areas across the great lakes. we will see rain across portions of the northeast with the same storm system. new orleans over mississippi
. he has said if pakistan and the u.s. went to war he would side with pakistan, and once threatened to join the taliban. another complicating factor, the increasing rogue attacks of afghan soldiers on u.s. and nato troops, some 45 attacks last year, killing 35 americans. but president obama said today that by this spring, u.s. forces will no longer be taking the lead in 90% of afghanistan. a quicker transition than had been planned. that will be the beginning of the end to a war that has cost more than 2,000 american lives. the white house says one reason to push for a quicker drawdown in afghanistan is cost. even now we are spending $5 billion a month, that is $167 million every day in afghanistan. today, the president said the war he once called a necessity has been worth it. >> at the end of this conflict, we are going to be able to say that the sacrifices that were made by those men and women in uniform has brought about the goal that we sought. >> reporter: by the end of next year the white house hopes to go from those 66,000 troops now in afghanistan to fewer than 10,000. and
bin laden might be living in a compound in pakistan. >> the intelligence case was entirely circumstantial. nobody saw osama bin laden, had a full id on him. >> how could he live for many years inside a walled compound and never leave? why would osama bin laden want to be 35 miles from islamabad? why would he want to be steps away from pakistan's equivalent of west point? did any of this make sense? >> narrator: the president called together his national security team. >> he said to his national security team in the situation room, "i want everybody to tell me what your view is, what you would do, what your recommendation is." and he got a very mixed response. i think of the people in the room, it was probably 50%, roughly, were in favor of the raid option that we ended up taking. >> narrator: only the president could make the final decision on whether to send u.s. troops into pakistan. >> he also knew that if it had gone wrong, there would not only have been dramatically negative consequences for the men he sent in, and for our country's security, but also for his own polit
three questions. one is afghanistan, the sec is pakistan. with regard to afghanistan, i wanted to ask you about the first question relates to president karzai and the leches ahead of them. when he was here just a couple of weeks ago, i had the chance to visit with him in leader mcconnel's office and a number of senators as well. and to ask him directly about the elections and ask him about my second question. but i wanted to get your sense of where you see those lexes going. what efforts you can undertake to make sure that they are free and fair because they've been, i think, central to the next chapter in this transition. i just wanted to comment on that. the second question as it relates to afghanistan is one that senator boxer raised and her work on this has been exemplary, on women and girls and in particular, i have a -- an amendment that we got through the national defense authorization act which would require both state and defense to file a report on the efforts to promote the security of afghan women and girls just by way of itemization monitoring and responding to changes in

libya and egypt and syria and pakistan. we are talking about a world that is changing and is less responsive to u.s. pressure and u.s. military power and diplomacy. that changes something that chuck hagel is aware of and he has well-formed views on. at the heart of that view is that power should be diffused away from the american military and plates and other power centers around the world and that idea itself is controversial. president obama agrees with that and many in congress do not. host: the former senator gave an interview with his former state paper, "the lincoln journal star" he said his critics have distorted his views. guest: it is unusual for a to give any interviews at all but he has faced a much criticism that he wanted to get one opening salvo out there and that is what he did. he basically said that he will have a chance to correct the record during his confirmation hearing. we should note from that interview that he is not backing down from any of his positions. he is not saying he no longer believes in the things that he believed in that were so controversial. h
national security goal. we'd like to be able to also keep an eye on pakistan's western provincess from that area as well and continue some of the operations that as you know we've been conducting from afghanistan to go after terrorists there too. those are our core interests. everything else is in the category of nice to v. unfortunately you can't necessarily go after a terrorist unless you help the afghan government stay on its feet and that means you've got to help them politically, economically, with their own army, and if you're trying to rush out by 2014, by the end of next year, and pull out everybody except, you know, a few seals and delta force commandos the afghans may not have the help they need to hold their own country together and your ultimate goals may not be achievable. that is where there are a lot of issues that wind up getting brought here. one last one is the afghan presidential elections next year. hamid karzai is supposed to step down in about 15 months. i think he will. but there is a big question about who is going to replace him, how much he will try to influen
of 2012, this includes the george bush ground and barack obama and pakistan alone killed between 2500, and 3300 people, between 475, and 884 were civilians and 176 were children. these are obviously innocent children. we know two of these children were americans. we also know the president never asked congress to declare war on the government or the state in the area where these drones hogan and we know his new secretary of defense is in favor of fewer troops on the ground and his new head of the cia like this drone program. we have a president who has not hesitated to kill foreign innocent children or american innocent children when they are in a foreign country. he loses great credibility when he stands with innocent american children and says i am going to keep you safe. charles: what do you think? >> i don't think the president's intentions were to kill children. stuart: charles: we know that is not his intention but if you got out this haphazardly and drop bombs indiscriminately out of a sky that is what happens. you hear some guy in a cafe and a crowded city so are other people
for the administration on several occasions. >> rose: syria, for example. >> pakistan, syria, other places. and i suspect that president obama is not going to see in senator john kerry as much of an independent operator as we saw with, say, secretary clinton who pressed very hard with bob gates for a much more muscular expansion of the surge in afghanistan. she pressed very hard for the libya intervention. and i'm -- it's not clear to me yet that secretary kerry, if he is confirmed, would necessarily press as hard as she did on those issues. he may well surprise us on that. >> rose: she has high public marks for what she did as secretary of state. among the foreign policy people, what do they look at as her principal accomplishment? >> i think that the public marks have been a little bit higher, charlie, than what you hear from within the foreign policy community. that's usually the case in these cases. certainly when she went around the world she was a star in her own right. she certainly stood for a number of women's rights issues that are near and dear to her heart. but it was interesting out of this

tint, pakistan use -- i mean at this point pakistan was a country where america was admired widely. our image in that nation was plummeted because in large measure because of this drone policy we have. i think the real problem is that you know, because we can do something, we haven't slowed down to ask should we do it? yeah, we had the technology, smart people who can run a drone. well what about the human element here where we make sure that we are respecting civilians, that we make sure that there is a quantum of proof that is reviewable before we decide to execute a human being including a u.s. citizen. and of course, all of this stuff is made a little more complicated because you take a guy like anwar al-awlaki bad guy. no doubt about it. and if you use a policy to get after a bad guy, then you never review the policy because the outcome was a bad guy. but we need to review this policy and start getting our hands around it to say does america want to be a country that abandoned the rule of law that abandoned the geneva convention, that doesn't have any reviewability, that doesn't --

was violence. drones dropping bombs on innocent people in pakistan is still violent. canada has roughly the same population as california. more californians kill each other with knives than canadians kill themselves with anything. so it's much deeper than just guns. we're talking about a culture and history, and that's why martin luther king's legacy is so important. >> jennifer: well, and of course guns are per vase nif a lot of communities struggling with poverty. what should we be doing to eliminate poverty in this country? >> very much like what the plt did today he said we're going to focus on gun. that's wonderful. behind it let's make poverty and let's make access to resources a priority. think about detroit, think about the south side of chicago. think about poor whites in appalachia, about what is going on in indian reservations. this kind of violence has been going on a long time among pour people. we have to have a much more comprehensive understanding of how we can access all of our citizens as well as human being around the world. >> jennifer: and the que
of afghanistan and pakistan -- previously opposed the surge in afghanistan. these are issues the need to be addressed. where do we think afghanistan is going to go? why did he think at one point that afghanistan was such a strategic interest? senator hagel has made a lot of statements over the years about the middle east and central asia that i think have to be addressed. israel-u.s. relationships have to be put into context. i think the caller started them. but the fact is not simply that it is between the u.s. and israel, there are statements the senator made on the sanctions on iran. top of the dictatorship in syria. not signing on to a resolution, asking europe to designate hezbollah as a terrorist organization. on and on. the context suggests that his views about the middle east and his use about the palestinian it-is really conflict have to be brought together with those other statements to get a bigger picture of how he thinks about the middle east. i think it is rare that a nominee -- i do think that people often say the president should give deference to his and -- to his app

the people in pakistan. that's the real des we are covering from. we are suffering from. >> you did trump me with the little examples right there. >> it starts young. jay it starts young and we both have kids. i will tell you you are out of your mind. i love you like a brother, but you are out of your mind. do you watch children programming? do you watch "mr. roger's"? did he have a woman barefoot and pregnant in the kitchen cooking him steak? >> he said it is you i like and not the things you wear. it is not the way you do your hair, but it is you i like. >> what do you want her to listen to? songs about fraking? >> that's economic development. >> i want them to learn about growth. i was reading that dr. suess story "the lorax." i said to my daughter this is not realistic. this sweater would not sell. it would not sell in the open market. >> show her a lady gaga video to teachers and her how to objective vies herself to men later in life. >> i fought this early on myself. i have two daughters. what i realize was i was going to fight back and brain wash them right back. what i said was, and
